The Other Factory: Seoul Biennale This exhibition at the inaugural Seoul Biennale features Shanghai’s industrial history as a backdrop to unpack questions of production within a city. Spanning research and design from the 1950s to 2000s, the installation analyzes the political, technological, economic and social forces shaping industry in Shanghai, and theorizes that far from the typical tropes of deindustrialization, production is very much alive in the city, even as it takes on new forms. The exhibition dives into architectural and planning scales, unearths archival material and remaps areas such as Jiading, Pengpu, Songjiang and Caohejing, in order to reveal potentials, invisible connections and alternate narratives.
